How to Throw a Hit Party Without Taking a Financial Hit

Nothing takes a celebration to the next level of cheer like lots and lots of party favors. We all remember going to parties when we were younger and how exciting getting those goodie bags was. A fun bag full of mystery items, toys, candies, and other random little things was always one of the best parts of any party. Carry this tradition on with your own kids and their friends by not holding back on the party favors! Don’t worry about this costing too much when you shop using these tips.

How to Get Cash Back on Party Favors

Make sure you shop for party favors through Ebates at your store of choice. When you shop through Ebates, you’ll be able to earn Cash Back on your orders. Cash Back gives you a percentage back on every eligible order you place at a store through Ebates, so you earn while you save!

Use Promo and Coupon Codes

When you’re shopping for party favors, don’t complete your online order without first checking for a promo or coupon code for your chosen store. Ebates store pages have a list of all current promo and coupon codes that are always being updated. You never know when you can find a code that will save you extra dollars, give you a percentage discount, or add free shipping to your order.

Shop the Seasonal Sales

Seasonal sales are a great time to stock up on party favors. Summer party items like pastel streamers, outdoor tablecloths with fun party themes, little toys that are perfect for playing outdoors, and other things that shout summertime fun always go on sale at the end of summer to make room for the next season’s merchandise. Stock up on party favors that won’t expire, like plastic toys, plates and forks, streamers, and packs of pastel balloons. You’ll be fully prepared to party when next summer rolls around.

Wait for Holiday Sales

Shopping right after the holidays is the best way to find stuff that you can use for next year at prices that you won’t even believe. Find cute holiday favors for Halloween parties, like plastic spiders and fake webs, all for a discount right after Halloween. I love having Easter egg hunts for my kids, my friends’ kids, and the little ones in the neighborhood. After Easter, when those plastic eggs go on sale, I buy all that I can find so that come next year, I don’t have to worry about it.

Some stores like Costume Discounters always have party favors on sale, and the holiday sales add even more to the savings! Shop the day after a holiday so that you can have an entire year to be proud of your savings and get excited to use your new party favors.

Find Free Shipping Deals

Lots of places offer free shipping. If you do a lot of online shopping, you know how fast shipping costs can add up. Always look for the places that offer free shipping, either with every order or if you spend a certain amount, like Amazon. Free shipping promo codes are also pretty common.

Sign up for Email Alerts

Signing up for emails from your favorite party favor stores is the easiest and most convenient way to keep up with all the current sales, promotions, and extra discounts that they run. You’ll never forget another sale, and signing up is fast and free. It’s definitely worth it.

Shop the Sales and Clearance Sections First

When you start shopping for party favors, check the sales and clearance sections first. The Disney Store is my daughter’s favorite place to shop for princess party favors, and whenever they go on sale, I always stock up so she can celebrate things her way. You never know what fun things you’ll find in these sales and clearance sections.

Use Store Credit Cards and Earn Rewards

If you have a store credit card that gives you rewards points or extra discounts, don’t forget to take advantage of this. The Target Red Card gives you an extra 5% off all orders. Get your party favors here and use your store card for additional savings. Other stores also offer great incentives to use a store card or open a new one, so always inquire about what you could save if you use or open a card at your favorite party favor store.
